The Best Marijuana in Durango
Thursday, February 10th, 2022
It’s right here at The Greenery. And hopefully, you already knew that; I’ve been telling you for years that we grow the best cannabis this side of the continental divide. However, let’s be honest: The Greenery Grow is awesome, but it’s not the biggest operation in the world because we’ve always taken the “quality over quantity” route. Our mom tent is big enough for thirty plants or so, meaning we have around thirty different strains in our genetics library that we can rotate through our flowering rooms. We grow some heavy hitters like Sour Diesel, Super Lemon Haze, and Runtz, but still, variety is the spice of life, and there’s no way our customers would stay happy if they had to smoke the same 30 varietals for the rest of their lives, so we also bring in some of the best cannabis from across Colorado to supplement what comes out of our cultivation. This morning, as I was sitting at my desk in a stupor wondering what I’d write about this week, I realized that I’ve never told you anything about the cultivations that produce some of the flower we bring into Durango specifically for variety’s sake, so, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Here you go:
Boulder Built is probably my favorite at the moment because to say that their genetics are “rare and exotic” would be an understatement. This is the team that brought you strains like Mr. Nasty and Flavor Crystals (pictured above), the former of which is a cross between GMO and Grease Monkey; the latter is created by crossing Grape Pie with Legend Orange Apricot. Boulder Built puts time and science into their craft, and the buds that come out of their cultivation are comically awesome—they’re huge and dense and covered with crystals that coat your hands when you play with your pot.
Silver Lake is another good one, and they’re shipping us four pounds of flower (all of which tests over 30% THC) as I type this. This place takes things up a step given that they cure all their cannabis in glass, which protects the flavor, but more importantly, they bring the variety. These guys grow about a billion different cultivars, so we’ll always bring in their newest and best to keep fresh our flower offerings. And not for nothing, 30% THC is impressive. This number quite literally means that a solid 30% of the flower’s weight is from pure THC, so please start low and go slow with this stuff. It packs a punch.
Next comes In The Flo, which is a company that has long supplied us with fire. I’d argue that this grow is the best wholesale-only cultivation in the state, and they focus on many of the classics (like Lemon Skunk) while peppering in exotics (like Don Shula). And if you’re paying attention and know your Colorado cannabis companies, you’ll notice that most of the brands I’m talking about are rooted in Boulder, which is no mistake. If you call yourself a true country/western singer, you’ve preformed in Nashville—if you call yourself a true cannabis breeder/grower, you’ve grown in Boulder. That’s just how it works, but the reason behind it lies with the OG Boulder growers who put Colorado on the map, one of which is In The Flo.
Lastly, per regular flower, anyway, comes Hummingbird Brand. We haven’t ordered from these guys yet (we will shortly), but it’s exciting to add Hummingbird to our lineup. They too are from Boulder, and they’re associated with The Farm family of dispensaries, which is woman-owned and simply awesome. These guys care about sustainability and organic practices, and they do everything right. Their bud is fluffy and bright and packed full of terpenes because they care more about flavor than potency, so it’s a win/win for everyone because we’ll charge a little less for this stuff than we will the potent, high-dollar stuff. Specifically, I’m excited about Skinny Pineapple (one of the strains Hummingbird bred) because the terp profile is insane: the flower smells like a bowl of fruit salad, the smoke tastes like a pineapple tart, and the high is downright tropical.
Now, the reason I used “regular flower” as a condition at the beginning of the previous paragraph is that it’d be amiss to not discuss the Sun Rocks we started selling recently from Dadirri. A “Sun Rock” is a bud of cannabis that’s been coated in distillate and then covered in Bubble Hash, which is why this uber-potent smokable doesn’t count as “regular flower” even though you smoke it as such. This stuff is dank and deep per the flavor, and the potent high breaks down the barriers those of us with high tolerances have standing between us and a good time, so I cannot tell you how much I love this stuff. And really, this just goes to show that we really are doing all we can to bring in the best cannabis products, because Dadirri is a solventless concentrate manufacturer, just like our own Hash Factory, but we added them to the mix because their Sun Rocks are second to none, which is what you deserve.
And that’s that! Please keep checking back in to learn all there is to know about recreational cannabis, and please keep checking our menu HERE because we’re always bringing in new flower strains. I promise that I’ll do a better job talking about all the new and exciting flower we’ll be sourcing from around Colorado, and I promise that The Greenery will stay focused on variety and quality when it comes to our weed, because We’re Your Best Buds!
